Psalm 120 The Message Bible

A Prayer for Deliverance from Deceitfulness

120 1  I'm in trouble. I cry to God, desperate for an answer: 2  "Deliver me from the liars, God! They smile so sweetly but lie through their teeth." 3  Do you know what's next, can you see what's coming, all you barefaced liars? 4  Pointed arrows and burning coals will be your reward.

5  I'm doomed to live in Meshech, cursed with a home in Kedar, 6  My whole life lived camping among quarreling neighbors. 7  I'm all for peace, but the minute I tell them so, they go to war!
